Storage has always been kind of a pain in our house.
It definitely was designed by a woman The washer and dryer are significantly away from the house in a shed.
The used was definitely designed to house a lot of tools too. There is a room in the house that has a metal door, a built-in safe and no window. I suppose the previous owner housed her guns there. The living room is small but the living room is immense with outlets in the floor. It is a total girl house that I have been giving a woman’s touch. The lack of storage is the killer though. I have a powder room vanity that is quite giant and a closet in there. Then there is one hallway closet. That closest houses the Heating, Ventilation & A/C component and the water heater. There is no room for anything else. The water oil furnace basically touches the ceiling and the Heating, Ventilation & A/C sits on a platform. I can’t block airflow and put anything under the oil furnace and A/C component either, however so I am right now stuck with one mop, broom and bucket in the anniversary. Someday it is going to be a USAble space. I want to get a tankless water oil furnace that is the size of a small suitcase. It mounts on the wall. I want to change our Heating, Ventilation & A/C component to a ductless device. That means the indoor air handlers would be in the bedrooms and wall mounted as well. That would free up the whole closet for shoes, boots, coats and cleaning supplies. That method is a long way coming though.
